NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Mississippi Rebels are doing their very best to turn Music City into their home away from home.
The Rebels opened last season with a thrilling 39-35 win over Vanderbilt and wrapped up the schedule beating Georgia Tech a couple miles away in the Music City Bowl at LP Field, home to the NFL's Tennessee Titans. Now the 15th-ranked Rebels are back at LP Field on Saturday playing Vanderbilt in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams.
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze isn't sure quite what to expect from Rebels' fans. But he says fans certainly traveled well to LP Field in December and expects a good turnout again for the Rebels (1-0).
Vanderbilt (0-1) desperately needs a win after being routed 37-7 by Temple in Derek Mason's coaching debut.
